Family Housing have started work on a new £14.3 million Extra Care Scheme at Gwynfryn in Ammanford which will include 50 self-contained apartments for older people with a range of needs: 24-hour care and support on site plus a café/restaurant, communal area, meeting room, a craft and hobby room, shop, hairdresser and staff facilities.

The scheme at Gwynfyn is the latest development in Carmarthenshire council’s capital investment programme to update and improve older persons’ care provision in the area, and has included funding from Welsh Government and Family Housing Association.

Family Housing’s model of Extra Care schemes provide excellent facilities to enable people to live in a secure, supportive environment with as much independence as possible. Extra Care provides a more flexible and independent approach to care, where people are able to live in their own self-contained apartments as opposed to living in a more communal setting. This offers more privacy and independence, whilst allowing them to call on the support of care staff who are based on the premises when needed. Extra Care also means the security of knowing that, should your needs change, you will not have to move to a nursing home and can also help couples stay together when one has different care needs.

Twelve new affordable homes will also be built on the site, just off Dyffryn Road as the Association firmly believes that it is important that local people are able to rent or buy affordable homes in their own communities.
